Patient Ratings

I have had both knees replaced and rotator cuff repair on my right shoulder by other doctors at Crystal Clinic. In Jan. 2015, Dr. Noel did a complete left shoulder replacement.  He is the BEST.  He is the best all around provider, and his PA, Jessica, is great.

I have been coming to the Crystal clinic for 10 years or more. All the doctors I have had help my situation were wonderful.  I was a patient of Dr. Bell and chose Dr. Noel for my new doctor.  This was my first visit with Dr. Noel and I was very satisfied.  All the doctors here are the best and I have recommended them to several of my friends (who have all been very happy).

Would always (and have) recommended Dr. Noel to friends and family.

Dr. Noel is one of the best! I am so glad he did my surgery. He is very kind and understanding.

I have the highest regard for Dr. Noel and his entire staff. My office visits and surgery experience were of high standard for my rotator cuff repair. I had confidence throughout the entire process. The staff was very thorough in their expertise as well as kind and compassionate to my needs.

This guy is the best... there might be equally proficient shoulder surgeons, but no one could be better. He listens and explains opinions with clarity and is a pleasure to meet with and is never rushed. Both shoulder replacements were reverse procedures and the result has been profound. Lot of nagging pain and limited range of motion before surgery, but no pain after, plus time and therapy is leading to never expected, excellent results.- Lawrence

Dr. Noel was very patient with all my questions and thorough with his explanations. It was a pleasure to meet him in my first visit and confident I will see him again should the need arise.- Chris

Dr. Noel was honest and upfront with me on my health issue. Without going into details, I expected to receive a cortisone shot but he explained why that would be unnecessary and a waste of money.- Tom

As always the staff and Dr's are always great and concerned about my well being. I won't go anywhere else for my skeletal repairs. I was a union concrete laborer for 35yrs and pretty much wore out most of my back and joints. These folks are awesome to work with.- Charlie

Dr. Noel did my reverse shoulder replacement and within 4 months I was playing golf 3 times a week. I would recommend him to anyone.- Ralph

Went to the Crystal Clinic to see Dr. Curtis Noel for my shoulder. Dr. Noel performed a total shoulder replacement and I would highly recommend him for any shoulder injury or needs that you have.- Arnold

I had my shoulder replaced by Dr. Noel and I highly recommend him and his staff. They went above and beyond to make the experience helpful with all the information to inform me as to what to expect before and after the procedure! Very professional.- William

Fantastic staff, O.R team was amazing! Never a doubt from Pre to Post that I picked the right Doctor and staff! Superb professionalism yet down to earth and easy to talk to. Just a great team!- David

I saw Dr. Noel for a shoulder injury. I was completely impressed with the efficiency of check in, the wait time to get back to the room was minimal and the wait to see the Dr was short. I wish all Dr offices were this efficient. The Dr and his staff were very friendly and kept me at ease.- Sam
